America Alone Quote

I'm reading Mark Steyn' America Alone right now and so far, the best quote is this.

Those who call for a Muslim Reformation in the spirit of the Christian Reformation ignore the obvious flaw in that analogy - that Muslims have the advantage of knowing (unlike Luther and Calvin) where reform in Europe ultimately led: the banishment of God to the margins of society.
The causal relationship implied there may or may not be true, but if I live within a religion where the righteous look like this

then I'm not likely to initiate changes that might lead to this

I think you can forget about the core Muslims adapting to us.
